Tuesday, October 6 will see the release of the must-see documentary film Bay Area Godfathers. Issued as part of the popular “Inside Metal” series, Bay Area Godfathers was directed by Bob Nalbandian and produced by Warren Croyle and features in-depth interviews with Bay Area metal icons and pivotal players—musicians, managers, journalists, and label execs.

Bay Area Godfathers is a two-part movie (part two will be released separately) and is the fourth movie in the Inside Metal series. MetalRock Films takes you on a transcendental journey into heavy metal yesteryear, covering the golden era from the late ’70s into the early ’90s, when the local hard rock and metal scene of the San Francisco Bay Area literally took the world by storm.

Packed with exclusive interviews, ultra-rare archival concert footage, and photographs of the influential artists of that groundbreaking era, the movie features Metallica, Megadeth, Exodus, Y&T, Testament, and many more.

The cast includes Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Dave Meniketti (Y&T), Steve Souza and Tom Hunting (Exodus), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), and Eric Peterson (Testament), among many others.
